NY Post Praises Evan Wolfson

"In a rarity for any US advocacy group, Freedom to Marry is closing up shop 'simply' because it won. The move is applause-worthy because it’s so rare for any 'public interest' lobby. Most outfits just find some new cause to justify keeping the money rolling in. 'We achieved the goal we set out to do,' said Evan Wolfson, Freedom to Marry’s founder and president, when the Supreme Court ruled last month that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to get married. Instead of becoming 'an organization that flails around and figures out what to do next,' Wolfson will help the group’s 30 or so employees find other 'good-guy causes' to work on. Freedom to Marry has the class to roll the credits once the 'hero' has won. Here’s hoping it starts a trend." - From the editorial board of the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post.
